Introducing leggings. You’ll never run out of inspiration.

The Eastern Gray Screech-Owls (Otus asio) feed on a wide variety of small inverterbrates, including insects, arachnids, crayfish, mammals, amphibians, reptiles, fishs and other birds.

These owls can flatten their body and even their ear tufts against their heads. They often perch on the entrance to their roost. When approached on its roost, the Screech-Owl will erect its ear tufts, and close its eyes as it attempts to blend into its natural environment and background.

This stern looking Eastern Gray Scheech-Owl was photographed in Ottawa’s west end in Ontario (Canada) with a Canon EOS 40D, a 300mm f2.8 lens and a 1.4t.c. Image is slightly cropped and processed in APP.
